    All of us have heard of Swami Vivekananda, the wandering monk who lived from 1863 to 1902 was one of the finest minds that our country ever produced. Vivekananda’s spirituality was a reflection of his understanding of life. He viewed life dispassionately and saw divinity in every being. This understanding of the broader meanings of life also made him a champion of women’s rights. He wanted the women to be empowered so that they could deal with their lives themselves. His advice to men was, ``our right of interference is limited entirely to giving education. Women must be put in a position to solve their own problems in their own way. No one can or ought to do this for them. And our Indian women are capable of doing it as any in the world.’’
